BEST MATE: THE ICON
This feature is a tribute to the beloved BEST MATE which tells the story of the horse and the humans involved with him: the dedication of his trainer Henrietta Knight who nurtured his brilliant talent with such skill, the coolness of his jockey Jim Culloty who was born to ride him and the unbridled affection of owner Jim Lewis who simply loved his, "Matey".
BEST MATE's first race win in Britain was at Cheltenham in 1999. It was therefore fitting that a ceremony following his tragic death at Exeter was held at Cheltenham on December 10th, 2005. This is a fitting tribute to a wonderful race horse - BEST MATE. This marvelous documentary captures the life of this great horse; he lives on in the memories of everyone who knew or followed his storied career.
